RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

Religious Liberty

In today’s culture, there is an attempt to reduce our freedom of religion into simply the freedom to believe or the freedom to worship. However, the free exercise of religion is much more than that. In America, each of us has the freedom to live out the convictions of our faith in our everyday life without threat of government intervention.

EDUCATION

Education

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” –Lincoln

Whether through the avenue of Public School, Private School or Homeschool, the education of our children is of utmost importance and is a responsibility that lies with the child’s parents.

If children don’t belong to their parents, who do they belong to?

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

Constitutional Rights

Our US Constitution outlines many of the rights that we as Americans have. These rights are not given to us by the Constitution; they are God given. It is our job to preserve the protections outlined in the Constitution because without them we may have a government that does not recognize the rights that every human has been given by their Creator.

MARRIAGE & FAMILY

The marriage of a man and a woman and their ability to raise their children is foundational to the strength of a nation. We believe that strengthening our families, defending parental rights and defending a natural definition of marriage are critical to achieving a strong and healthy nation.

ISLAM

Do Muslims and Christians serve the same God? Because many people who follow Islam are kind people, doesn’t that prove Islam is a religion of peace? Is Sharia law really that bad? These and many other questions are on the minds of many Americans today.

GAMBLING

In the late 80’s, South Dakota began its venture into gaming through Casino style games in Deadwood, a State lottery and video lottery. The State profits over $100 Million annually from this venture, but many South Dakotan’s are seeing the secondary negative effects of this industry.

The cost on society within South Dakota is a result of problem and pathological gamblers, due to job loss, unemployment benefits, welfare benefits, poor physical and mental health, and gambling treatment.
